Breaking News: Chelsea has finally appoint Amorim as manager to help complete Gyokeres transfer – DONE DEAL

Chelsea’s ‘obvious’ next managerial choice will help to finalize the incredible £68 million transfer.

The only name in the most recent Chelsea next manager rumors is Ruben Amorim of Sporting CP, a head coach who could help the Blues land a big acquisition.

By choosing to name Ruben Amorim as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor, Chelsea can give themselves a significant boost in transfers. The Sporting CP manager has been connected to the Stamford Bridge position in the past, but despite meeting Chelsea’s demands for their next head coach, he has not been added to the most recent shortlists.

It was not long after Pochettino’s announcement of his mutually agreed-upon departure that Chelsea made their wishes for his replacement abundantly evident. The Blues are looking for a youthful, forward-thinking head coach who can play a possession-based style of football while maintaining a solid defensive record.

Even though Amorim perfectly fits that description, he hasn’t been mentioned in any of the numerous rumors regarding possible Pochettino replacements. The 39-year-old recently had a season in Portugal where he won the title, but his team lost to eventual finalists Atalanta in the Europa League last-16.

Sebastian Hoeness, Kieran McKenna, Thomas Frank, and Enzo Maresca have been named as Amorim’s four replacements. Chelsea’s interest in Amorim is understandable given that all four managers have had recent success or have made significant progress. However, Amorim’s appointment could result in a significant transfer boost.

Viktor Gyokeres’ form has been a major factor in Sporting’s Portuguese League victory; his first season with the team was incredibly successful. The former Coventry City striker scored 43 goals in 49 games across all competitions, which naturally piqued Arsenal’s and Chelsea’s interest.

Both teams seem to be in need of a natural goal scorer who can score goals consistently; Gyokeres and Benjamin Sesko are at the top of their respective lists. Thus, selecting Amorim would not only be a wise choice, but it might also play a big role in Chelsea acquiring Gyokeres.

“He’s a very good coach, I like him and I wouldn’t mind [working with him next year]. It’s football, it’s normal. I can’t promise anything,” Gyokeres responded when asked about Amorim and his future in Portugal.

“I like being here, so I would like to stay, but in football, things change quickly, so we have to adjust.” It’s challenging, so I can’t promise anything. This season still has games to be played. We’ll see.

Sporting could demand up to £65 million for his departure, as reported back in March. That amount could rise, though, particularly if Chelsea decides to pursue their talisman after Amorim leaves. Still, it’s worth a shot, as the current contenders don’t particularly stand out or have a track record of success over an extended period of time.
